Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Trading on up here. My dream of cruising full-time is getting closer. Just signed a contract last Saturday for a new semi-custom Catalina 445. Hope to see her next week at the factory. Boat should be delivered by end of Aug to the broker. It will be a mad rush to get her ready for March 1st date of cutting the docklines. So much to do and so little time to do it in. We are very excited.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I started sailing about 4 years ago, but grew up in and on the water. In late January 2013, I bought a Freedom 38. No partner. It needed a lot of work, some of which I did myself and other stuff I hired out. A couple of weeks ago, I motor-sailed it with 2 friends north from San Diego to San Francisco. At times, when I'm trying to think too many steps ahead, it can seem overwhelming -- almost terrifyingly paralyzing -- so I just don't let my mind go that way. The best parts though are the feelings of accomplishment and constant learning, and the love I have for this "new" boat that the broker had labeled as "deferred maintenance."

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Add me to the list! Just bought my first boat, a Pearson 28-2! I've been sailing about 5 years, but mostly out of the marina where I took my sailing classes, on their Flying Scots.

Spent the 4th of July just sitting on her, having a beer, and wondering how I ever lived without a boat.

Any girls that want to half own a boat mine is available. Ownership comes after long and fun relationship with a reasonably wonderful froot-loop.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I should update this. I now own two boats. My main rig, and a walker bay sailing dink. Am thinking of naming the dinky dink "Schrödinger's Kitten." Have been having a blast sailing the latter, and learning lots, too.
